BEHIND THE SCENES
MEET RODNEY WOOD
Eclectic Fine Artist, ArtoCade & Art Cartopia Director, Ubiquitous Art Guy of Many Hats
Rodney Wood, recipient of the “2018 Governor’s Leadership Award—Arts and Community Action,” is one of Trinidad’s most extraordinary local and fine artists. Wood says, “My current obsession is with painting and this will likely be my media of choice for the rest of my life.” Well except for one other . . .
On a tour of the country in search of outsider visionary artists, weird museums, abandoned architecture and roadside attractions, Wood discovered an art car parade that left an indelible imprint on his creative senses. When asked to pitch a signature event, he thought, “This is my chance.” And from this sprung Trinidad’s annual ArtoCade, the second largest art car event in the nation. Described as wacky and family-friendly, wildly creative and completely fun, Trinidad’s ArtoCade festival, a parade (and party) of artfully decorated vehicles has received the Governor’s Award for best Small Town Festival and has given birth to its side-kick Art Cartopia Museum.
